Christmas cards round 2

Well I got todays four cards done...


Again I used my festive favorites set from SU. Let me tell you a secret about this set... it was originally a 6 piece set but mine is now a 8 piece set... SU wants you to place the deer, the trees and the snowmen all on one block. I decided to follow what a few other demos have done and when I got my hands on my hands on the level 1 hostess set So Many Sayings use the blocks from that set and separate the three images and then I also went to good old wallyworld and bought the $3.88 jenga set and mounted all those sentiments on it. I love having them separate. As you can see from my last few posts.

Well back to my card now. I used the festive favorites set along with my basic grey figgy pudding 6x6 pad( I have got to get more of it). I got my figgy pudding from All That Scraps. Well I had a blast making these cards while putting my own Christmas tree up here will have to get a picture in the next day or so and share my Tree with you all. The sentiment is a poem I got from Two peas in a bucket. My goal this year is to have sentiments in all my Christmas cards printed... wish me luck on this... well I'm off I have my nephews tonight and have to get everyone settled in for the night. Have a great evening and see you again tomorrow with four more cards of Christmas.....

Love me some figgy pudding! Your trees are awesome - great idea to mount the stamps separately. You're inspiring me!

Hi Aimee, Great cards! I used the snowmen last year for my cards. Like your idea of putting the small tag on the inside. I really like the tree paper with the trees so may make some of those this year. Thanks for the idea.

Hi, Sis!

I did this exact same thing with this stamp set. DH is Mr. Handy and grew up with a general contractor for a dad, so he whipped out his saw and cut the wood block into thirds. Absolutely love it this way and use it SO much more! Supa supa cute cards!
